CPAC Shows American Conservatism Is Rapidly Going Pro-Homosexual

Homosexual Log Cabin Republican Exhibitor’s table at CPAC 2017.

_____________________

Note from Peter LaBarbera:

Dear AFTAH Readers,

Anyone who know me knows that I’m a Cause guy, and a Truth guy. And the “cause” which I humbly believe I am called to defend is God’s Truth about the sin of homosexuality and the insidious, “out-and-proud” LGBTQ movement that demands celebration of it. Now I am deeply saddened to report that American “conservatism” is going pro-homosexual at the expense of truth and wholesome morality. (Is Christianity next?)

Last week (Feb. 21-24), I attended the annual Conservative Political Action Conference CPAC. What I saw there and experienced in the lead-up to CPAC is that libertarians (or liberal-tarians, as my friend Ryan Sorba calls them) are moving ahead steadily in their attempt to re-define conservatism to condone homosexuality, including so-called “gay marriage.” They want to turn the Republican Party into a version of the pro-homosexual-“marriage” Conservative party in the U.K.  And they are moving RAPIDLY towards that goal.

As you can see from the recent AFTAH press release reprinted below, both AFTAH and MassResistance were prevented from having a simple, paid Exhibitor’s table at CPAC. Just a few years ago, CPAC faced criticism for inviting “gay” sponsors and speakers; now they are banning solid pro-family conservatives who dare to confront Big LGBTQ. Meanwhile, CPAC allowed the homosexual-transgender activist group Log Cabin Republicans to have an Exhibitor’s table at the popular conservative gathering.

As the pressure builds to downplay or ignore the “gay” issue, millions of conservatives like you and me who have usually voted Republican now face a choice: are we going to side publicly with God or cave in to morally-bankrupt libertarianism? Will YOU keep standing for the Truth about biblical sexual morality, or find a way to cop out of this critical battle?  Will you fight for the soul of the GOP?

At CPAC, the beautiful Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Maryland just outside the Beltway was teeming with young conservatives. I suddenly felt old as I saw in their vitality and idealism myself 30 or so years ago. In fact, I launched my “Lambda Report on Homosexuality” newsletter monitoring the “gay” agenda, the precursor of American For Truth, the with much zeal at CPAC 25 years ago.

But the great crisis today–something about which I fear most young conservatives are ignorant–is that their precious idealism has been corrupted by a capitulation to a worldly LGBTQ revolution, which is the most extreme branch of the larger, destructive Sexual Revolution. An LGBTQueer Revolution that says “gender” doesn’t matter, nor does it matter if a young man dates a woman or another man!  (“Love is love,” goes the inane slogan.)

Of course it matters.  It matters to God, who does not give a pass to Republican immorality just because it has an “R” attached to it.  It matters to His Son, Jesus Christ–who has turned around the lives of many men and women who, in their sin and deep confusion, thought it was their (inborn) destiny to be “gay,” or “trans.” [See AFTAH’s wonderful and compelling 2017 banquet videos featuring EX-“gay” Christian Stephen Black, founder of First Stone Ministries and a Board Member of Restored Hope Network.]

Truth always matters. So shame on CPAC for what it did to my good friend, Brian Camenker, president of MassResistance, who is a genuine hero for his many years of fighting, with indomitable fortitude and without compromise, against all efforts to mainstream perversion. If there were any justice in the “conservative’ movement, Brian would have been invited to give a seminar at CPAC on the lessons he has learned fighting the nefarious Sin Movement that calls itself “gay” (and now “transgender”).

But instead of being honored, and given an opportunity to pass on his wisdom to a new generation who desperately needs it, Camenker and MR were banned and then smeared by CPAC – the same CPAC that last year invited as speaker Milo Yiannopoulos, who joked on his “Dangerous Faggot” college speaking tour about preferring to be sodomized by black men. (CPAC dropped Milo after he defended sex between men and boys; Milo himself was the boy victim of a pederast priest.)

The reality is that even in Trump’s America, telling the truth about homosexualism and that “dirtiest” word of all–the M-word (Morality)–often earns you contempt, or derision, or hostile and puzzled responses even from family members and loved ones.  Nevertheless, before God, and with Him as our main and enduring Ally, we must persist and never apologize for defending God’s gift of sexuality in the HEALTHY bounds of marriage between a man and a woman:

[Jesus] answered, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female?” (Matthew 19:4 ESV)

In the end, it’s God’s Truth, not ours, so it’s not man’s to redefine.

In the scheme of things, the sad story that I witnessed firsthand of CPAC’s downward moral trajectory is the story of fallen man: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.” (Proverbs 14:12 ESV)

Thank the Lord that we can rise above the culture and its politically correct lies by trusting in God and His Inerrant Word, the Bible, and using our liberty while we still have it to fight harder for that Truth than thousands of LGBTQ activists do for their evolving web of lies.  May God bless you richly as you stay strong in the fight!

Sincerely in Christ,

Peter LaBarbera

‘Gay-Trans’ Activists In, Social Conservatives Fighting LGBTQ Agenda Out: Log Cabin Republican activists man Exhibitor’s table at CPAC conference. LCR works to build acceptance of homosexuality and transgenderism within the GOP. Meanwhile, CPAC disinvited MassResistance, which focuses on opposing LGBTQ activism, as an Exhibitor and ignored AFTAH’s paid application ($2,000) for an Exhibtor’s sponsorship at CPAC. Note person at far left is Adelynn Campbell, a “transgender” activist attending the conference as a student member of the conservative campus group Turning Point USA, which downplays traditional “socialcon” opposition to the LGBTQ agenda.

Folks, here is a video interview I did with my friend Cliff Kincaid Friday at CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) on CPAC’s curious “ban” of MassResistance as a paid Exhibitor, and their apparent rejection by non-action of AFTAH’s $2,000 Exhibitor application.

Cliff, the founder and president of America’s Survival, Inc. (ASI), had his press credentials denied by CPAC after he did an interview with MassResistance president Brian Camenker, which is the second video below. Kincaid has criticized CPAC in the past over taking non-conservative actions, so that also probably contributed to his ouster.

As you can see, Cliff interviewed me directly in front of CPAC’s Exhibitor’s table for Log Cabin Republicans, a homosexual activist group that pushes for acceptance of LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) issues within the GOP. Just a few years ago, allowing homosexual “conservative” groups to sponsor at CPAC was widely criticized in the larger conservative movement; now the organization is banishing single-issue opponents of LGBTQ activism.

The president of Log Cabin, Gregory Angelo, told me that neither he nor LCR had anything to do with MassResistance being disinvited by CPAC. So who got to American Conservative Union (ACU) Executive Director Dan Schneider, who called up Camenker to “fire” MassResistance as a sponsor? Who knows, but this whole mess smacks of Washington elitism and we at AFTAH will not sit idly by as self-perceived leaders on the Right throw grassroots pro-family heroes like Brian under the bus while redefining conservatism (and Christianity) to accommodate sexual perversion. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Kincaid interview with AFTAH’s Peter LaBarbera at CPAC, published Feb. 25, 2018:

ASI video description:

The American Conservative Union, the sponsor of CPAC, is working to normalize homosexual activity and destroy the winning Reagan coalition of social, economic, and foreign policy conservatives. The effect will be to marginalize and isolate traditional conservatives and drive millions of Christians out of the Republican Party.

AFTAH: Is CPAC Conservative When It Bans Anti-Gay-Agenda Exhibitors While Welcoming LGBTQ Activists?

Friday, February 23rd, 2018

Pro-Family Hero Silenced by CPAC: Brian Camenker (left, shown with Gov. Mike Huckabee in 2010) is the leading grassroots fighter against the LGBTQ lobby in the world. Yet his mostly single-issue group, MassResistance, was officially disinvited as an Exhibitor Sponsor by CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference. Americans For Truth (AFTAH) then paid the $2,000 to have an Exhibitor’s table at CPAC but our request was ignored and our payment refunded. Meanwhile, CPAC is allowing a homosexual activist group, Log Cabin Republicans, to exhibit, as well as single-issue advocacy groups on issues like opposition to the death penalty, usually a liberal crusade. Is libertarianism silencing the defense of Judeo-Christian sexual morality? Will the GOP go pro-homosexuality like the Conservative party in the U.K.?

AFTAH: Is CPAC ‘Conservative’ When It Bans Anti-Gay Agenda Exhibitors While Welcoming LGBTQ Activists?

February 23, 2018

Contact: Peter LaBarbera: 312-324-3787; [email protected]

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH.org), issued the following statement about the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC)’s decision to disinvite the pro-family group MassResistance as an Exhibitor sponsor. CPAC (Feb. 21-24) welcomed the LGBTQ activist Log Cabin Republicans as Exhibitors, but AFTAH received no response from CPAC when it applied and paid $2,000 to be an Exhibitor after MR was disinvited:

CPAC’s capricious action against MassResistance and its president, Brian Camenker, is an unconscionable sellout of real, principled conservative values. CPAC has it backwards: it is the homosexual-transgender activist group Log Cabin Republicans that doesn’t belong at a conservative conference–not an organization fighting the fanatical, anti-Christian LGBTQ lobby.

The Log Cabin Republicans’ morally subversive agenda is to push for the acceptance of proud homosexuality and “gay marriage” within the Republican Party, and “rights” based on disordered yet changeable sexual behaviors and an ever-expanding array of “gender identities.” This defies God’s creation and is not conservative.

MassResistance is the world’s leading grassroots organization standing up to the homosexual-bisexual-transgender movement. Its dedicated followers expose efforts to “mainstream” deviant sex-and-gender confusion in schools and work to protect—i.e., conserve—the age-old institution of marriage as God ordained it. This is the essence of noble conservatism.

After opening up the door to sexual immorality (with an “R” next to it), CPAC then went a step further by banning this heroic pro-family group, using as its pretext something Camenker said in a speech three years ago. Keep in mind that CPAC invited profane Milo Yiannopoulos, a self-described “Dangerous Faggot,” to speak last year and also has welcomed atheists as Exhibitors.

CPAC has squandered its moral authority by pandering to political correctness. It is teaching young conservatives all the wrong lessons about fairness and right versus wrong. CPAC’s leaders owe an apology not just to Camenker and MassResistance but to principled, Reagan social conservatives everywhere.

MassResistance Writer Asks In Wake of CPAC Ban – Is the Conservative Movement Dead?

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

Folks, this essay by my friend and author Amy Contrada lays out some of the troubled recent history of CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) and homosexuality. Last week, CPAC’s executive director, Dan Schneider, suddenly disinvited our friends at MassResistance as an Exhibitor sponsor at the conservative conference (which began yesterday) after first allowing MR to exhibit. You see, as Amy documents, CPAC–the group that welcomed self-styled “Dangerous Faggot” Milo Yiannopoulos as a speaker last year, is concerned that MassResistance president Brian Camenker lacks “common decency”! (This is not a joke.) And needless to say, the same CPAC again this year welcomed the homosexual-transgender activists at Log Cabin Republicans as Exhibitors. [Watch the short AFTAH video on Log Cabin-Chicago’s perverted 2009 “gay pride” float HERE.]

When MR was booted, AFTAH applied for an Exhibitor’s table, but we never heard back from CPAC and our $2,000 payment was not processed. Then I learned that CPAC denied journalist’s credentials to Cliff Kincaid, a good friend of AFTAH and a rare conservative leader who still fights the radical LGBTQueer agenda. It seems that the CPAC model for building a “conservative” movement is to alienate real conservatives, especially socialcons, while pandering to social “progressives” at the expense of biblical truth and fidelity to the GOP Platform. What folly. More coming on this CPAC-sellout story.  — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter:” @PeterLaBarbera

Pro Family Group Asks: Is the Conservative Movement Dead?

By Amy Contrada

Our conservative pro-family group MassResistance was approved in January as an exhibitor at CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference. We were abruptly disinvited last week. We are trying to understand the reason.

CPAC’s parent organization, the American Conservative Union, claims it “defines conservatism.” They hold a huge annual conference in DC, beginning February 21 this year.

Why would a group or speaker be banned? CPAC Executive Director Dan Schneider said he rescinded our participation due to our uncivil discourse. He was “uncomfortable” with our tone. CPAC has been telling our supporters who call that we “lack common decency.” Several of our supporters were even told that our group encourages violence against gays! That is libelous. We’ve never done anything of the sort.

How has CPAC responded to the actual uncivil discourse of its invitees in the past? Let’s look at two examples: the Log Cabin Republicans and Milo Yiannopoulos. We will then describe our own shocking treatment at the hands of the “conservative establishment.”

Log Cabin Republicans

The LGBT activist Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) have a table at CPAC 2018 for the third year in a row. Here’s how they reacted to the 2016 Republican Party Platform in full-page ad in USA Today:

LOSERS! MORONS! SAD! No, these aren’t tweets from Donald Trump. This is what common-sense conservatives are saying about the most anti-LGBT platform the Republican Party has ever had. GOP Platform Committee: Out of touch, out of line, and out of step with 61% of young Republicans who favor same-sex marriage.

Is an ad portraying fellow Republicans as “losers” and “morons” civil discourse? LCR admitted their ad was “provocative.” Their president explained he was “mad as hell” as he ranted against the platform’s “nonsense” on same-sex marriage, transgender bathroom access, and approval of counseling for those questioning their sexual orientation.

At a gay pride event in Chicago [see AFTAH video], the LCR float included signs reading:

A strong military shoots big loads
BIG DICKS – small government
CUT TAXES – UNCUT 8 inches

Yet the American Conservative Union (ACU) and CPAC have had no problem with LCR’s insulting and degrading language. This is despite LCR’s violation of one of the four mandatory criteria for being a CPAC sponsor, namely that “The applicant organization must not exist primarily for a liberal purpose.” And what is LCR’s main purpose? Promoting the radical homosexual and transgender agenda – clearly a liberal purpose, and their core identity.

Milo Yiannopoulos aka ‘Dangerous Faggot’

In 2017, vulgar “gay” provocateur libertine Milo Yiannopoulos (who calls himself the “Dangerous Faggot”) was invited to be the keynote speaker at CPAC. Milo’s “tone” was no secret. ACU’s invitation went out to him despite his performance a year before in Cleveland during the 2016 Republican Convention where he flamed out in his rank language.
